We know you’re busy, but we need to hear from you so that we can improve our interactions with kiwi IT Professionals.

In our efforts to improve your experience with Microsoft New Zealand, we would love to hear from you and your fellow IT Professionals – we need your feedback about what we are doing well in, and where there is room for improvement. You may have major suggestions, or minor improvements…  Have we kept you informed about Cloud Computing? What about Windows Server 2012? System Center 2012? Windows Azure, from an infrastructure perspective? Do you need different kinds of information? Feedback on any or all of these topics will help us to work with you more effectively.

By now, you may have received an invitation to the Microsoft Customer and Partner Satisfaction Survey. This survey gives us a sense of whether we are providing value to IT Pros in New Zealand – and what improvements can be made in terms of products, service and the local team. As the Windows Infrastructure Technical Evangelist for New Zealand, I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to complete it. Don’t worry, you don’t have to answer every question, just give us some feedback on the areas that you choose, then submit it to us.

Even though I’ve mentioned it on this blog before, you may not know that I am held personally responsible for your satisfaction with Microsoft New Zealand – and it’s a big part of my job to come up with ideas and plans and help you have a better experience with Microsoft NZ.

Over the past year, we have listened to your feedback and responded with running more hands-on I.T. Camps, offering more information around security, licensing, and Windows Azure – and are working on improving TechEd. Also in response to your suggestions, we are working to shorten the NZ TechNet Flash email update – to provide snippets of information around news and events that may be of interest to you.

What do you think? How are we doing? Where can we do better?

If you have been invited to complete the survey, you would have received an email invitation from feedback@e-mail.microsoft.com with a link to an online customer satisfaction survey. If you utilise a spam filter, please adjust the settings to allow email from the domain@satisfaction.ipsos.com – as this is a valid Microsoft survey.

Thank you in advance for your participation and, perhaps more importantly, for your valuable feedback. You have our commitment that the results of the survey will be used to better meet the needs of kiwi IT Professionals.

It’s that time again…
But this window of opportunity will close on April 12th!

Thanks again,

Nathan
